The Larvae are not included, you will be provided the information on how to order those with this kit.
As one of the top online toy retailers, we have access to unprecendented quantities of product review data. One of the key ways that we use this data is by associating our products to the specific ages and genders of the kids who are playing with them. Whereas most retailers must rely upon manufacturer suggested ages (i.e. 3+), we take actual customer usage and share it with you here so that you can choose the perfect toy or game.
But how does this help me? You can use these graphs as a general measure of it's appropriateness for a given age and gender. While this information is generally accurate, it should not be used as an absolute answer. For instance, many dinosaur toys are purchased for boys, however, that doesn't mean that it's inappropriate for a girl who happens to like dinosaurs.
NOTE: The orange color in the charts above indicate ages that are LESS than the manufacturer suggested age. Please purchase at your discretion if your child is younger than 8 years of age.

As noted, this kit does not contain larvae. The statement for obtaining it is foggy. The word omitted is "ADDITIONAL." I had my 12 year old son order this for my 9 year old son. I reviewed order quickly (yes, I admit it was quickly). I thought we were getting a certificate to get larvae. (It does state "included.") But info is INCLUDED to order at AN ADDITIONAL $11.95 I may have thought it was a typo, since the kit does cost , and not this $11.95. We ordered it thinking it was a better deal than the original butterfly kit seller that we had originally purchased from. To Fat Brain's credit, they came through with a gift certificate for the amount to be used at later date. I did have to eat shipping. I do appreciate that they refunded the kit price. It speaks about valuing the customer, as I must claim that my 12yr old and I were mistaken. We are still left looking for a source of larvae that does not double the cost of kit.
As stated, the enclosed information details purchase of butterfly larvae. It is shipped for an additional cost from an insect farm. Fat Brain Toys owns no larvae. As an alternative, live butterflies may be caught to live in the habitat. If neither of these options flies with you, a different purchase may keep peace in your habitat.

We ordered this product for use in a preschool classroom. We were unsure from the description of the product if the caterpillars were included in the original package. They are not and have to be ordered separately. We ordered the caterpillars and they arrived within two days. The children are all excited to see the caterpillars move and grow.
Some alternate spelling variations of this product:
butterfly kits, butterflies, butterfly set, live butterfly,
